ATM Recyclingsystems

ATM stands for Arnold Technology for Metal recycling, based on more than 80 years of experience and is a leading company of the ASCO Group. The company develops, plans, manufactures and services metal recycling systems for the processing of secondary raw materials.

Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Andreas Anbauer, managing director of ATM Recyclingsystems, has been managing the company for more than 4 years:
“The basis for our holistic solutions is our innovative research, our know-how in engineering and in-house production of the recycling plants as well as the worldwide spare parts and service offer. Our guiding principle is to work together with our customers as a long-term partner delivering the best technology and service solutions for success.”

ATM Recyclingsystems is aware of the importance of recycling and the preservation of our environment. The company has therefore set itself the task of offering products with the best efficiency and optimal cycle time and thus the lowest possible energy consumption. To ensure all of this, the company is increasingly involved with the Internet of Things.

“We originally tried to develop the IoT solution for our recycling plants ourselves. However, it turned out that this was more complex than expected. A lot of time was lost in the process”, explains Andreas Anbauer.

“Therefore, we started looking for a reliable partner to implement our desired IoT solution. With t-matix we have found a partner who not only provides a flexible and configurable IoT platform, but also supports our way of thinking and working”.

Valid data is the basis of a powerful IoT platform. With an IoT gateway, data is extracted directly from the PLC of the machines and transmitted to the platform. The interactive dashboard provides detailed information such as utilization reports, error reports, operating data, production status, material information, and much more. ATM is now able to efficiently align the systems based on the information obtained, increase the runtimes and optimize the use of resources and processes.

“With the extensive service from t-matix – from hardware selection, connectivity to the creation of the IoT solution including the mobile app – we can concentrate on our core competence and take a decisive step forward,” says Andreas Anbauer.

Aquis Systems AG

The Mechatronics specialist offers its customers with t-matix holistic solutions in the area of Smart Metering:

The Aquis Systems AG is a specialist for mechatronic devices with focus on electronic sanitary engineering with modern fittings and devices for various applications. Innovative ideas in combination with sound development in mechanics and electronics enable the realization of novel and clever solutions. Many leading brands and OEM companies already trust in Aquis’ services and products on a long-term basis. In order to offer an all-in-one package to the customers, Aquis cooperates closely with t-matix and relies on the t-matix IoT-platform. Together we now succeed in a fast and cost-attractive implementation of individual solutions – from the concept to the smart, networked product.

The main challenges in the sanitary sector are to manually check and adjust the devices and systems and to maintain them regularly, so that, for example, contamination can be prevented or consumables can be replaced in time. In order to save valuable resources and time, we looked for a suitable IoT solution. This solution should enable the devices to be easily managed and adjusted, various information about the devices and systems to be collected and recorded via sensors and, if necessary, reported and upcoming maintenance to be indicated. With t-matix we have found a reliable and strong partner who fulfils our wishes thanks to the configurable and future-proof IoT platform and equips our devices and systems with a monitoring and control solution“, says A. Wawrla, CEO of Aquis Systems AG.

The solution developed includes, among other things, special filter systems connected to the IoT platform, whose use can be measured in real time and monitored via app. In this way it is possible to check at any time whether the filters are in order and when they need to be changed. The so-called remote parameterization (also known as “over-the-air parameterization”) is a great advantage when a quick system adjustment or changeover is required. It is possible to adjust the devices or even entire systems remotely without having to be directly on site. With the help of OTA parameterization, for example, the water flow time of automatically activated fittings can be regulated or thermal disinfection can be programmed. Especially in stadiums, hotels and everywhere where not all water pipes are used regularly, remote monitoring and control is indispensable, as the risk of contamination – e.g. by legionella – is increased if the system is used infrequently.

Together with t-matix we have developed a solution which is an indispensable part of our devices and sanitary installations due to the manifold advantages for administration and adjustment, monitoring, programming and preventive maintenance. In addition, the customers can be offered further advantages through intelligent evaluations, e.g. evaluations of the annual water consumption in a hospital, which can be used for further calculations“.

Due to the wide range of applicable sensors (e.g. acceleration sensors, GPS with internal geofencing, temperature sensors, proximity sensors, etc.) and the large variety of connectivity (e.g. WLAN, NB-IoT, LTE, BLE) the partnership between Aquis and t-matix results in numerous fields of application beyond the smart metering sector.
